2. (8 points) Draw a transistor-level diagram (using n-FETs and p-FETs) of a NAND gate with
3 inputs, A, B and C.
Suppose all three inputs are high initially and then A goes low, causing the output of the
NAND gate to go from low to high. Let tLH be the time for this high to low transition. Now,
suppose that input A goes high again, causing the output to go from high to low. Let tHL be
the time for this low to high transition. Which is larger, tLH or tHL? Explain why.
How much larger? Assume that the on-resistance of an n-FET is the same as the on-
resistance of a p-FET.
